DHAL Mezza-pede SMT connectors feature a low-profile header and an ultra thin insulator that measures only 0.025 in. When paired with a model DHS mating socket, they have a z-axis stack height of 0.132 in., reducing package height and shortening the signal path. They target applications ranging from tunable laser power connectors in optical transceivers to hand-held medical electronic devices, as well as telecommunications and military applications. They have an SMT lead-frame and pin design, and combine screw-machined terminals with an over-molded lead frame in an LCP insulator. Operating temperatures range from -55 to +125°C, and can handle as much as 1.1 A current at +80°C.

Compact 48-V, 40-amp brushless motor drives (.PDF) require no external inductors for slotless or other low-inductance motors. They are preprogramed to require no user set up or adjustments, and can operate at near 100% duty cycle. Part numbers are available for speeds up to 100,000 rpm for a two pole motor or 50,000 rpm for a 4 pole motor. Both two quadrant and four quadrant versions are offered. Four quadrant units are not powered by a battery braking module, and can absorb regenerated energy, eliminating the need for a relay and resistor for energy absorption.

The turn-mill center G200 achieves a maximum turning length of up to 660 mm with a high-performance milling spindle, and an expanded live-tool complement. The XPanel is equipped with i4.0 readiness. The machine bed is arranged vertically to extend the work area and permit the use of a second lower tool carrier. The fluid-cooled main and counter spindles are designed identically and feature a bar capacity of 65 mm and a 165-mm maximum chuck diameter. The motorized spindles allow productive turning with a power of 31.5/32 kW (100%/40% duty cycle), a torque of 125/170 Nm, and a maximum speed of 6000 rpm. The INDEX Xpanel i4.0 control center facilitates setup and operation.

The RFC4800 Series of touchless angle sensors feature an IO-Link digital interface and measure angular positions up to 360°. They have 14-bit resolution, 0.36° repeatability, and an independent full-scale linearity of ±0.5%. They can serve as a revolution counter and speed monitor with zero wear. The IO-Link standard intelligent digital interface connects according to serial communication protocol for easy wiring, needing only three wires to transmit values and status information. The status bit can signal a controller if a sensor needs replacement and the controller can detect the new device to automatically configure it based on stored values. Parameters such as zero point and sign of rotational direction can be programmed into the sensor over this bus. Other output interfaces include analog voltage and current, and digital outputs options like SSI, SPI, incremental and CANopen. Single and multi-channel versions are available and sealed up to IP69K and operating temperature range is -40 to +125 °C.

The RD24 connector with plastic hex nut reduces the need for mounting-screw holes and target thick panel boxes. Available in 4- and 7-pin configurations, the panel-mount connectors are rated at a maximum of 16A per contact and can transfer up to 400V. These screw-terminated connectors are fitted with gold plated contacts and are designed to withstand harsh industrial environments with an IP67 rating. An added feature allows an optional protection cap lanyard to attach directly to the housing body of the connector.

The compact right-angle, flange-mounted WPLFE gearbox targets applications with tight space constraints and powerful torque requirements. It features lifetime lubrication and minimal installation height to install in any direction. Its standardized flange interface makes it easy to mount drive components including pulleys, belt drives, rack-and-pinion systems, linear units, and rotary tables. The large flange output-shaft diameter provides five times the torsional stiffness of an output shaft with a feather key. In addition, deep, low-friction groove ball bearings produce little heat, and ultimately improve the lifetime performance of the gearbox and drive. Ther features include 94% efficiency at full load, operating temperatures from 25 to 90°C, IP54 protection, a nominal output torque of up to 260 Nm, radial force up to 3,800 N, a service life of 20,000 hours, and a wide inertia ration range.

Bore cylinders in the MP5 Airpel Plus family feature a bore size of 5.6 mm and a maximum outside diameter of 9.8 mm. The air cylinders are designed for low-force pneumatic actuation that requires sensitive pressure responses and gram-level force control. With no rod seal or bushing, the seal friction is limited to 0.5% of the load and can be used without lubrication. They are available in six strokes from 10 mm to 100 mm, and perform best at a pressure range of 0.2 to 0.7 MPa and temperatures from -20 to + 85°C.

Rectangular hoods in the BIG series meet requirements of the wiring market, accommodating larger cable sizes and providing additional entry holes. Up to three times larger than standard hoods, their upper and lower half is connected with 4 screws and O-rings for easy assembly. Holes can be drilled into the hood to connect push button selectors, switches, and signaling lamps, and power supplies or signaling circuits can be installed even after connectors have been installed. The hood entry is available in one or more top and side entries, with a closed enclosure that can be drilled. The BIG series is IP66 rated after the hood has been coupled with appropriate rectangular base and cable glands.
